Goat's Pride Dairy - Berry Cheesecake

Recipe

Today's Family Recipe is Berry Cheesecake from our friends at Goat's Pride Dairy in Abbotsford.

It is a family recipe created in 2006 by their son Jason when they first moved to the Mt Lehman area.

Jason is the Mt Lehman cheesemaker who also processes their milk and yogurt at the farm. They did not want the usual crumbled graham wafer crust, so they borrowed an idea from a rhubarb crumble and used whole flake oatmeal instead. They have spent many summers picking berries that grow in their backyard community, the berry capital of BC!

The luscious cheesecake filling features their own Mt Lehman cheese and Goat's Pride Dairy yogurt for a light, healthy dessert! The chevre is only 15% milk fat. An excellent choice for those who cannot tolerate gluten or traditional dairy products!
